Copper light by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Morup in 1963 – Danish vintage copper pendant in good vintage condition
NOVA, copper pendant light by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1963 – attractive vintage polished copper hanging lamp in good vintage condition.
The NOVA is a round pendant light, comprised of four polished copper shades encompassing each other. Inside it features a warm orange inner coating, except towards the top, where it is white, and the smallest of the shades, which is coated with a dark gray anti-glare band. The orange inner coating ensures a warm reflection of light, while the dark gray anti-glare band softens the downward directed light.
When lit, it provides a soft and glare-free downwards, making it perfect for low hanging, as the shiny copper captures and reflects the contours of the surrounding space – a true beauty.
A gorgeous addition to any vintage or classic modern interior. Scandinavian design and excellent artisan work oozes from this copper version of the NOVA.
One of several themes that ran through Jo Hammerborg’s work at Fog & Mørup during the 1960s was that each design often was produced in three different metals – copper, brass and aluminum. Hammerborg’s classic early 1960s NOVA pendant light is among these triads.
The version I have for sale here is a copper version (polished) with orange inner coating. It is in good vintage condition with few normal signs of age and usage (bumps from the inner stems, on top shade (seen in photo 8) and a slight wobbliness but this is not an issue when hung). Please see photos!
All original, but rewired with 2 m (6′ 6.7″) high end quality, black fabric cord – for safety and beauty. Tested and fully functional. Polished, cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
